    I’m guessing you’re asking what type of western plane could do this?
    If so, any type of rabbet plane could do this – something where the blade goes right to the edge.

    Thanks, yes, that’s what I meant πŸ™‚
    And thanks to you I also found the Japanese name: kiwa kanna (ιš›ι‰‹). For example: http://www2.odn.ne.jp/mandaraya/tachimori-kiw30.html

    If you look at the instructional videos Paul has hes one where he shows using a tapering jig to plane pieces to the same dimension. The principle used with the tapering jig is the same as the 45 used in the video.

    Popular Woodworking has a small description of the method. The author used a paring chisel and a shoulder plane.

    There’s a video of Kaare Loftheim at Colonial Williamsburg showing the method of creating the secret dovetail like that. He uses a saw and a chisel. Fun to watch.

    Thanks! The video above though is missing one miter. This other video I found builds exactly what I was looking for:
